The majority of birders are probably old fogies like me but I'm sure you'll
find people your age in the various clubs and organisations.

If you haven't already joined, I suggest that you consider membership of
Birds Australia and/or Bird Observation and Conservation Australia as well
as any local birding or 'friends of' groups.

My parents instilled a love of nature in me from a very young age but it is
only relatively recently (1990s) that I began compiling lists and records
of my observations.  I am a little ahead of you in species seen and
correctly identified but not by very much.

I hope you continue to enjoy birding and hopefully inspire other young
people to take a greater interest in birds and our environment.

Hi everyone.

Just saying hello from a new member. Ive been reading messages on
Birding-Aus for a while, but only now have I decided to sign up. Im
thirteen and I have been birding for about ten months now since I got back
from a trip around Australia. I have seen and properly identified  272
different species of Australian birds, which isn't that much, but for a
thirteen year old it probably  is.
The trouble with birding at this age is that I don't know anyone my age
who's interested in birds, except for my cousin.

Looking forward to reading more.
